Based on content analyses of 653 articles published between 2004 and 2008 in five key journals in the IS field, we demonstrate that the IS discipline exhibits data poverty characteristics as evident by the prevailing data sharing and reuse practices. As a result, the scope and scale of IS research is inhibited and the likelihood of generating far-reaching salient results is low. Finally, we discuss the implications to the IS discipline and draw recommendations for shifting the related practices from a vicious circle of data poverty to a virtuous circle of data richness.
